I've heard that Elder Neal A. Maxwell wrote about the Atonement of Jesus Christ was, somehow, performed for each one of us one by one. (I haven't had a chance to search for it, but I'd dearly like to find it!) Elder Merrill J. Bateman, however, taught: "For many years I thought of the Savior's experience in the garden and on the cross as places where a large mass of sin was heaped upon Him. Through the words of Alma, Abinadi, Isaiah, and other prophets, however, my view has changed. Instead of an impersonal mass of sin, there was a long line of people, as Jesus felt, 'our infirmities,' bore our griefs, carried our sorrows and was bruised for our iniquities. The atonement was an intimate, personal experience in which Jesus came to know how to help each of us." (Ensign, Nov. 2005)
